Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Saturday - Launching the Jerry Covers Project

Similar to a multi-part radio special I produced last year for KBOO Community Radio, Saturday @ Noon PST (or what time for you?) I will broadcast the first of many shows this year featuring cover songs performed by Jerry Garcia away from The Grateful Dead. Listen in.

The project song list is NOT comprehensive and focuses intentionally, though not exclusively, on the early-mid 1970s. This special has no acoustic music included.

The format is to play the originally recorded version of the tune and then a carefully selected Jerry version.

The show Saturday will feature only jazz tunes and as I have nearly 5 hours of material for this 2-hour show, it is likely to only be Part 1 of the jazz portion of the special.

Future episodes are likely be themed with funk/soul and Bob Dylan being two more known themes I'll explore. Following, there will be general shows to share the rest of the tunes.

As I have not yet made a choice for any of the songs below, I welcome your suggestions for the version I should play. Not seeing a title here does not mean I'm not including the song, but more likely that there's few enough that I'll simply listen to them all by myself...
